Very cool pattern
I didn't end up wearing this dress (but my mom did! That's her in the photo). I can usually wear a 0 and 2 interchangeably but this size 2 was way too big for me.

Gorgeous dress, I really stood out in a sea of black
This dress was beautiful! I rented an 8 and a 10 and I think I was between sizes. I ended up wearing the 8, but it was very tight around my chest. I wear a DD, so this is a common problem for me. I wore with black tights for an anniversary party and was complimented all night.

So many compliments!
This is a great dress! I rented it for my b-day and received tons of compliments. The fabric is fun and high quality. The dress' shape is flattering; the skirt makes you want to twirl. I wore it with black tights and a black cardigan at work, and it could easily transition to an evening out look.

I received tons of compliments! The dress is beautiful! The colors are vibrant and girly!
I am a kate spade addict, however, this dress runs large! I wore the size 2 and the waist was huge.... I wore a black thin belt and it made a huge difference, I'm very surprised this dress doesn't bring a belt. The fabric is on the thicker side, the pockets are deep. The zipper on the back is a little tricky, I needed help. Overall great dress

Cute
This dress was cute but I wouldn't rent it again. I had to rent a size up because my regular size wasn't available and it was big on me. I had to add a belt to show my waist. Overall it was ok.

LOVE the fit of this dress! It fit my body perfectly and the quality of the dress was amazing.
The fit of this dress was perfect. I'm short, barely 5 foot tall. I was worried this dress would look a little awkward on me with the length but it was great! The quality of the dress was like its never been worn before. I loved this dress so much I may actually buy it.

Fun, flirty dress!
Kate Spade makes fun, amazing dresses that fit well, are flattering, and usually have pockets which is always a winner. This one is no different. The pattern is really fun and bright, the fabric is high quality and moves and feels great. The only thing that confused me was the seam down the front of the dress. I belted it for contrast but you could go without.

Dancing with my girlfriends all night!
This dress was perfect! I got so many compliments on my outfit. The dress for true to size, hugged in the right places, covered up my problem areas, and hit at just the right length. The dress was conservative enough for a church wedding and fun enough for a reception with a lot of drinking and dancing!

So comfortable! And beautiful!
This was a perfect wedding dress since it was comfortable to dance in while being heavy enough material that I wasn't afraid if it blowing up in the wind or on the dance floor. I received so many compliments on how different it was.

Total Jackie O dress
This dress is so princessy but so perfect. Kate Spade to a T. The rose gold zipper in the back takes the cake. It's satiny and heavy so you know it's real and the pockets make it amazing. I love the way he flare gives me hips yet the top is fitted and makes me feel tiny. Kate does fit right on top so large chested ladies size up. The only thing about this dress that annoys me is the princess seam going right down the center but what else would you expect from a princess dress?

Well structured dress
I loved wearing this dress. I normally wear a 6 but was able to fit in the 4 just fine. The fit of the dress was perfect for my figure. Loved the pattern and the fabric was beautiful. Added bonus: pockets!

Feminine, classy, and not the typical LBD
I originally ordered the size 2 and 4. The size 2 I wasn't available so I was able to pick a different dress along with the size 4 from my original order of this dress. I decided to wear this dress in the size 4, as opposed to the other style dress they shipped to me, apologetically. Although the stomach/waist was loose, this dress was so pretty, feminine, and photographer extremely well.

The fit of this dress was perfect. The material is heavier than expected, but perfect for a breezy beach wedding. I got a ton of compliments and loved this dress!

I wore this to my bridal shower and got tons of compliments, but not my favorite RTR rental.
The dress was pretty, but a little tight in the bust and arms. The bigger size was too big (if only there was a 7! Lol). The lining underneath kept showing which was a little annoying that I kept having to hike up, BUT it was a very nice dress and I got showered with compliments :) the color and shine in pictures are great!

Great bridal luncheon dress!!!
I rented this for my future sister in law's bridal luncheon. The 6 fit better in the waist, but there's no way I could have worn a bra as it was very tight up top. The 8 was a little looser than I would prefer in my waist, but not wearing a bra wasn't an option. The liner was a little longer than the hemline, but you could easily fix it with fashion tape or a pin. Very comfortable, feminine dress!

I added my own satin ribbon belt and black suede booties. I also rented Kenneth Jay Lane mini mosaic drop earrings for this outfit.

Easy to wear and flattering
The fit is very flattering and the dress was really easy to wear. The pockets were great and that's always a huge selling point in my book. The cons of this dress were as follows: 1) the dress runs a little small so I had to go up a size. If you plan on eating a bunch while in this dress go up a size because it doesn't stretch. 2) this dress has clearly been worn a bunch. Only someone who is looking would notice, so an outside observer wouldn't be the wiser, but the fabric definitely felt like it had been worn a bunch of times. 3) supporting point 2, the size 10 came with a wonky zipper. Good thing I didn't need it, but just zipping it (without it on) the zipper fell off the track a couple times. And the classic Kate Spade bow that should be the zipper pull was missing and replaced with a basic zipper pull for the size 10. It worked out in the end but it was one of my least favorite dresses that I have rented. Looked fine but it didn't feel as fabulous and high end as other dresses I have rented.

I love Kate and this dress was a hit! I received countless compliments.
Fun to dance in with its large skirt, and convent for phone and lipstick with its pockets. I've always loved Kate and this dress in no exception. Was a bit tight in the bust but the larger size was too loose everywhere else. I wore this to my cousin's wedding and was out and about for an entire day and night - so comfy! This dress and a simple pair of heels was all that I needed.

Classy and fun
I rented this for a rehearsal dinner at a winery. For perfect. I wore the smaller size because the arm holes were a tad large. I added a skinny black belt which I thought really helped. Fabric is lovely

Lovely dress, but might be too big for a petite gal
I loved the look of this dress! It was perfect for a wedding weekend's festivities. The color was spot on to the image online. I also loved having the pockets so I didn't have to carry a purse around. The skirt was fun and flared out a bit. I got lots of compliments as to how the dress was very pretty. The only thing is that it was a bit big for a petite gal like me. I'm a bit small chested (barely an A) and found that the chest area was gapping a little even though the waist fit me perfectly. I did feel like something was missing from my waist though and added a cute skinny belt to finish out my outfit. Also, the shoulders flared out too much; I felt like it covered too much of my shoulders. I must have narrow shoulders. I'm 5'3", so the dress hit right at my knees. It swung and moved beautifully. It a lot of fun sitting down because the dress would fan out perfectly. Overall, still a lovely dress. Would recommend it for both daytime or nighttime affairs.

I'm about the same size as you (5'3 and 32 barely A) with narrow shoulders. Any chance you have a picture of what you looked like in it? Your review is super helpful though. Thanks!

Great for day/evening wedding
I wore this to a daytime church ceremony and evening wedding reception. Was perfect for the event. I usually wear a 4, but felt it looked too bulky (and the lining was showing at the bottom - not sure how to tell RTR about this issue?), so I tried the 2. It was much better, but definitely snug around the rib cage. I also rented the necklace that they show on the model but really didn't care for it, so added a black belt instead which broke up the pattern a bit and highlighted my waist. Overall very happy with the rental.

Lovely dress but was in poor condition
This dress is really lovely & flattering, but unfortunately I was disappointed in the condition it was in. I wore it anyway and it wasn't immediately noticeable, but the fabric on the skirt appeared damaged and there were numerous snags. That said, I received a lot of compliments on this dress. Runs large, but can be tight in the chest for large-busted women. Rented it along with the necklace in the picture but chose to wear my own necklace instead - I thought the black was a little dark/intense for this dress and opted for more colorful one.

too big, but very unique
I wasn't able to wear this dress (hence, no picture) because it was too big for me. RTR doesn't carry a lot of size 00 dresses so I was hopeful this dress would fit me, but sadly, there was an extra 1 inch of fabric on each side of my underarms/ribcage when I zipped the dress up. Wearing a more padded bra did not help. It definitely was way too large. The print is also far more PINK in undertone than the picture shows. Very unique, but not at all discrete. I definitely think a statement necklace is key, as when I tried the dress on alone, it felt like it was missing something. The necklace pairing in the picture with the large black stones is a great accompanying piece. Also, the dress has POCKETS!

It was the perfect dress for the photo shoot for my fashion blogs anniversary, fun and girly.
Fit runs a little large, I usually opt for a size 4 since I am 5'10" and have an athletic build but the 2 fit perfectly. Great length and the skirt was nice and full.

Not my favorite ...
This was my least favorite dress I've rented from RTR. The material is very thick. The lining gets in the way of the zipper, not to mention it hung lower than the dress itself which I can't stand. There were multiple ... ripples (?) in different parts of the dress and not having a steamer I was afraid to iron it so I had to let them be. The only thing I liked about this dress was that it sucked in my stomach and had pockets.

Perfect classic cocktail dress!
Wore this to a beautiful evening 'cocktail attire' wedding. I was nervous because they only had a size 4 and usually I'm a size 6. Thankfully, it fit perfectly! I loved the colors of the dress as well as the quality of the fabric. The style was flattering, although I thought a little black belt helped the look, and so would definitely recommend one. I wore the necklace on the model but unfortunately it arrived missing one of the jewels. I used my make-shift crafting skills to remedy this problem, but definitely NOT a problem you want the day of a nice wedding!

Dress runs large & has a lot of material
The material is thick and the dress is nice. However, it does run large as others have said. It is not ideal for a pear shape since there is a lot of material and the skirt is voluminous. Pretty dress, sad it didn't workout but RTR customer service is great and they were able to ship another one!

Amazing friends celebrating a wonderful family!
Overall the dress was very flattering and comfortable. I think I would have ideally wore a size smaller but it wasn't available so I just went with the four. The style and cut of the dress was very forgiving so the larger fit wasn't that big of a deal. Bonus: dress has pockets!

This dress is absolutely adorable. Love the print and the shape is so easy and comfortable! It does run a bit big throughout the midsection so I would size down for backup.

So feminine, flattering and comfortable.
I thought it was a little large and fuller in the skirt than I anticipated, but still looked lovely. I loved the exposed rose gold zipper. I wore this dress for an engagement party in my honor at 7pm with black tights.

This dress is really beautiful, but it didn't fit my shape.
Don't get me wrong, this dress if really pretty. The print is interesting, and the fabric has a sateen finish. On the right person, it would be gorgeous. I'm just not that person. If you have a larger chest and thicker middle, know that this dress is cut narrow in those areas. I've worn another kate spade in the same size, but this one seemed much more narrow. The fabric has NO GIVE, and zipper is a bit difficult. That being said, the length is GREAT for taller girls, and I LOVE the pockets.

Loads of compliments, easy to wear, beautiful fabric!
Let me begin by saying, Kate Spade dresses are not for large chested women. I knew that going in so I ordered up. It was very fitted thru the rib cage area. I have narrow hips, but I can see that it would be snug on a more pear shaped girl. I am glad I rented it instead of buying it. It was fun to wear one time, but wouldn't become a staple of mine.

How was the length? I'm about 5'3". I'm going for a knee-length dress for my wedding brunch, which this dress looks in the picture, but then the text says it's knee to tea-length on a 5'6" woman!

Lovely dress for any occasion!
I wore this to my rehearsal dinner and it was beautiful! I received lots of compliments. I typically wear an 8, and this was a bit snug on the torso area. I'm top heavy, and I think the dress made me look a bit too busty for the occasion. Still a wonderful dress!
